The Key West Historic District (also known as Old Town of the City of Key West) is a U.S. historic district located in Key West, Florida. It is roughly the western half of the island and when you stay in this tiny district it’s amazing how much there is to see on each street. Whether you want shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and bars this little area of Key West has it all.
The center district of Old Town Key West is where you’ll find more residents. Historic streets are lined with more and more wooden Victorian homes and cottages built by early ship builders and men of wealth. A hand full of side streets intersect with little lanes with names like Love Lane, Poorhouse Lane, and Catholic Lane – each with a story of their own.
Where the Who’s who have lived: Starting with the wreckers who would salvage the shipwrecks on the reefs to the famous authors Ernest Hemingway and Shel Silverstein. Oh and lets not forever even the US President Harry Truman!
